    Hi, I'm looking for a sensor...
    I'm not sure what its called or what type of sensor it is. All I can describe is that it should be a sensor that measures vibrations and/or electricity.
    and looks something like that doctor's equipment (forgot what its called) http://www.mergersandinquisitions.co.../04/doctor.jpg

    I'm not looking for that equipment exactly but one that can connect to a computer and measure vibrations/electricity.

    Any one know what I'm talking about?
    I know my descriptions are sort of fuzzy but please bare with me, lol.

    The doctor's listening device is called a stethoscope. They can be either acoustic devices or have some kind of microphone or piezoelectric sensor.

    The pickup on an electric guitar is sometimes a piezoelectric sensor.

    An accelerometer is a name for a device for measuring vibration.

    What exactly are you trying to do with your computer?
